HISTORICAL HERITAGE 

From the opening of its doors in 1912 as a normal school for training teachers to its present status as one of Tennessee's two 
comprehensive universities, Memphis State has been thrust forward by the growth of Memphis and the Mid-South. A town oriented 
to a rural economy and culture in 1900 grew into a large urban and commercial center by mid-century, and the city's public institution 
of higher learning experienced comparable growth. 

The normal school grew from a few hundred students ( 1912-1925), to a teachers' college with a better staff and an enrollment of up 
to a thousand (1925-1941), then to a state college with an expanded curriculum in liberal arts, business and graduate education for 
three to four thousand students (1941-1957), until the institution achieved university status in 1957. 

It was not an easy struggle. As the city of Memphis grew and prospered, the demand for a completely developed public university 
grew. Finally, legislators and board members agreed about Memphis State's role and approved the change urged so forcefully by 
concerned local citizens, several presidents, alumni and faculty members. 

The metropolitan requirements for more highly trained university graduates have, of necessity, caused Memphis State to expand 
all its offerings in arts and sciences, business, the fine arts, education, engineering and technology, law, and several special 
professional fields. More than 75 percent of the full-time faculty have earned the highest possible degree in their fields 

As enrollment settles in the 20,000 range, Memphis State is committed to developing programs of the highest quality for only 
through such a commitment will it be a standard of quality in higher education for the citizens of the State of Tennessee Every 
Memphis State student is expected, upon graduation, to be able to compete effectively with his or her counterparts from any other 
respected university in the nation.

ACADEMIC DRESS 



The following information is to help our visitors identify the costumes seen in the commencement procession. 

Academic dress originated at universities in the Middle Ages when a warm gown and hood were necessary in unheated buildings. For 
centuries these gowns distinguished students from their fellow citizens; sometimes this distinction in dress symbolized unfortunate 
controversies between "town and gown". The European habit of using academic robes came to this country in the eighteenth century 
with the founding of what is now Columbia University. In 1895 American universities and colleges standardized their styles of academic 
costumes, and this system, with occasional modifications, is still in force. Today the various colors, trimmings, and patterns of gown, 
hood, and cap are all traditional and symbolize both the degree and field of learning. 

GO WNS: American academic gowns are usually of black material, and their pattern varies with the degree held. The bachelor gowns are 
relatively simple in design with a closed front and long, pointed, open sleeves. Master's gowns have an open front with long, colored 
sleeves, the arms extending through a slit at the elbow, giving the appearance of short sleeves. Doctoral gowns are the most elaborate 
with velvet panels down the open front and three velvet bars on the bell-shaped sleeves. 

HOODS: The hoods, differing in length for the three degrees (bachelor's, master's, and doctor's), are lined with the colors of the 
institution that granted the degree. Hoods are also trimmed with the color that heralds the major field of learning. 

CAPS: A square mortarboard is the approval headgear. The tassel, fastened to the middle point of the top of the cap, is black or the color 
appropriate to the subject; it may be gold if the holder has a doctor's degree. Memphis State University has adopted the practice of 
having candidates for the bachelor degree to wear the tassels on the right front side before degrees are conferred and to shift them to the 
left at the moment when the degrees are awarded to them. 

Following is a list of the hood and tassel colors that represent several categories of learning. 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White Home Economics Maroon 

Audiology & Speech Pathology . Dark Blue Journalism Crimson 

City & Regional Planning Scarlet Red Law Purple 

Commerce, Accountancy, Business Sapphire Blue Music Pink 

Communication Arts Silver Gray Nursing Apricot 

Economics Copper Physical Education Sage Green 

Education Light Blue Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Engineering Orange Science Golden Yellow 

Fine Arts Brown Social Work Citron 



All hoods are edged with the above colors. These same colors may be used for the facing and sleeve bars of doctoral gowns and tassels on 
bachelors' and masters' caps. 

The lining of the hood indicates the university granting the degree— for Memphis State University, blue and gray. Among other 
institutional colors represented at this commencement are those for Arkansas, red and white; Chicago, maroon; Columbia, light blue 
and white chevron; Duke, royal blue with white chevron; Emory, navy blue with gold chevron; Harvard, crimson; Illinois, navy blue 
with two orange chevrons; University of Iowa, old gold; Kansas, navy blue wi.th cardinal chevron; Northwestern, purple with gold 
chevrons; Ohio State, scarlet with silver gray chevron; Rice, silver above blue; Texas, white above orange; Vanderbilt, black and gold; 
Wisconsin, bright red; Yale, royal blue.

GRADUATION WITH HONORS 



With the approval of the University Honors Council, Memphis State University offers several departmental 
honors programs. These programs involve a combination of special honors course work, independent study 
and usually an honors thesis or project. Students who successfully complete a departmental honors program 
are awarded their degrees with honors in their area of concentration (e.g., With Honors in English) 



Note: Because of time imitations imposed in preparing this program for commencement, l.sting for 
graduation with distinction was based on a minimum of forty-five (45 ) graded semester hours and 
the grade point average as of the term prior to the final semester. Final determination of graduation 
with distinction will be based on a minimum of fifty (50) graded semester hours, including the final 
semester, and on the cumulative grade point average as of graduation. 



THE COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCES 

Candidates presented by Dean John H. Wakeley, Ph.D. 

The aims and purposes of The College of Arts and Sciences are summarized in these words which serve as part of our official statement in 
the catalog issue of the University Bulletin: "The program of liberal studies aims ( 1) to provide students with a store of factual knowledge; 
( 2) to introduce them to varying sets of principles; ( 3) to stimulate them to think about and to evaluate these facts and principles; and (4) to 
encourage them to order their own affairs and those of society with the talent, insight, and discrimination which they develop." We h 
been privileged to pursue these aims with the following students who are candidates for the five degrees which we offer:

THE FOGELMAN COLLEGE OF BUSINESS AND ECONOMICS 

Candidates presented by Dean M.E. Bond, Ph.D. 

The Fogelman College of Business and Economics offers only one undergraduate degree, the Bachelor of Business Administration degree. 
The goal of the undergraduate program of the Fogelman College of Business and Economics is to provide the basic education needed to 
prepare a man or woman to enter the field of business and to move rapidly from an entry level position to a managerial level of work. 

We believe the curriculum which best accomplishes this goal consists of four components. First, a broad foundation of course work is 
provided in the liberal arts and sciences. At least 40 percent of the work taken by each student in the Fogelman College of Business and 
Economics is in the humanities, the social sciences, the natural and physical sciences, communications, and mathematics. 

Second, the curriculum includes a significant amount of study of the economic and legal environment of business and introduces each of 
the major functional fields of business— accounting, finance management, and marketing. 

Third, the curriculum provides for a choice of a major by the student. The student is permitted to select a major from accounting, 
economics, finance, insurance, real estate, business management, management information systems, marketing, international business, or 
office administration. Within most areas there is opportunity for the student to select a more specialized area of concentration, such as 
personnel management, advertising, economic theory, secretarial science, and so on. 

Fourth, the Bachelor of Business Administration curriculum offers the opportunity for the selection of free electives. Through these 
electives, the student may select courses particularly suited to his or her own interests, thus providing an opportunity for the student to 
pursue in greater breadth and depth the study of business or related fields.

THE DEPARTMENT OF AEROSPACE STUDIES 

AFROTC DETACHMENTS NR 785 
CANDIDATES FOR AIR FORCE COMMISSION 

The Department of Aerospace Studies offers a curriculum to prepare men and women for commissioned service in the United States Air 
Force. The courses and Leadership Laboratory are designed to complement the student's work in his major field of study. A minor in 
Aerospace Studies is offered to those who complete 18 semester hours of Air Force ROTC courses. 

The General Military Course, open to all University students, comprises four semesters of survey-level instruction on the development 
and organization of the Air Force. A month of summer training at an active Air Force base leads to membership in the Professional Officer 
Course for selected cadets and applicants from the University at large. During their final two years of graduate or undergraduate schooling, 
Air Force ROTC cadets study comprehensive courses in Leadership and Management, American Defense Policy and Flight Theory. 
Candidates for pilot training complete a course of 25 hours of flight instruction in light aircraft. The cadets organize and conduct a broad 
range of extracurricular activities to develop leadership skills and managerial experience to meet the course objectives of Leadership 
Laboratory. 

Upon graduation and completion of the Air Force ROTC program, the cadets are commissioned as Second Lieutenants and assume the 
responsibilities of managing our nation's Aerospace defense resources.

THE DEPARTMENT OF MILITARY SCIENCE 

ARMY ROTC DETACHMENT 

CANDIDATES FOR ARMY COMMISSION 

The Army ROTC Department of Military Science offers a two-year and a four-year program of study in leadership and management 
leading to a commission as a Second Lieutenant in either the active Army, the National Guard, or the Army Reserves. These programs are 
open to men and women. 

The four-year program consists of the Basic Course, normally the Freshman and Sophomore years, and the Advanced Course, normally 
the Junior and Senior years. The Basic Course prepares students for the Advanced Course and provides an education in citizenship, basic 
leadership and management skills, and enrichment experiences required to become an effective junior officer. The student learns about the 
wide range of Army career specialties. Advanced Course students normally attend a six-week leadership practicum called Advanced Camp 
between their Junior and Senior level of the Advanced Course. This camp is conducted at an Army installation. Students are provided 
uniforms, room and board, medical care, travel to and from camp and are paid approximately one-half the pay of 2/LT while at camp. 

The two-year program consists of the Advanced Course only. Selected students may qualify for entry into the two-year program at the 
Advanced Course level by completing a challenging six-week basic leadership experience during the Summer at Fort Knox, Kentucky. 
Veterans, National Guard or Army Reserve personnel, and students who have completed 3 or more years of Junior ROTC may also qualify 
for advanced placement into the Advanced Course. 

In addition to courses offered for academic credit, the Army Military Science program sponsors extra-curricular activities. The Tiger 
Ranger Company, Drill Team, and Color Guard are open to all Army ROTC students. 

Students are eligible to participate in Army ROTC sponsored activities held throughout the school year. These challenging adventure 
activities include backpacking, field training, mountaineering, rappelling, land navigation, orienteering, and survival training.

NATIONAL ANTHEM 

Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light 
What so proudly we hail'd at the twilight's last gleaming, 
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight 
O'er the ramparts we watch'd were so gallantly streaming? 
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air, 
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. 
Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave 
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave? 



ALMA MATER 

Stand firm, O Alma Mater, 
Through all the years to come; 
In days of youth and beauty 
Thy halls have been our home. 
In time of preparation 
Great lessons didst thou teach 
Til now, O Alma Mater, 
The stars we'll strive to reach.
